Last weekend, I went with my girlfriend and some friends to a nice and trendy restaurant in Lisbon - Zocco. The food was nice, the service was excellent and the price reasonable (30EUR per person). We had some martinis, the main course, desert, coffee, wine and some other drinks at the end.

Although the restaurant was nice, the surprise was the wine we tried. Quinta dos Aciprestes, 2004, from Douro.

This wine causes a real explosion of ripe fruit flavours in the palate, showing at the end the excellent structure and perfect balance. Its price is something around 5 EUR but it tastes like a 10-15EUR wine. Definitively give it a try.
